Most of us still follow the textbook type of teaching, where the students are made to by-heart, recite and write what is taught by us. As teachers how evolved are we in terms of incorporating technology with the curriculum?
In an era of global connectivity teachers should be actively involved to make the students aware of the digital tools available and how effectively they can be used for learning purposes.In order for myself to be effective, I started by creating colorful power point presentation to grab their attention. Off-late i have also started using online flash cards to make learning a group activity, where students interact with each other and learn to create videos, photos and flash cards online effectively for learning purposes and one such site that that i came across which provides us with a platform for collaborative studies is http://www.funnelbrain.com. Teachers should continuously re-invent themselves and should desire to be creative in classrooms by using the latest web tools. Such learning methodologies creates a sense of “self directed” learning and problem solving attitude among students. We can also check http://kathyschrock.net to learn about different teaching techniques used by different teachers.

www.coursera.com; http://www.khanacademy.org/; https://www.edx.org/; http://oyc.yale.edu/; http://ocw.uci.edu/courses/?cat=7; http://archive.org/details/education
There are other sites, but I really like Coursera, it has by far the most classes and the most universities. The classes are in various disciplines, not just math and science, but also in humanities. For an example there are courses in mythology, the history of Rock and Roll, poetry, and many other subjects.
